If you’re a PC gamer, you’ll be happy to know that a lot of titles are getting huge discounts on the Fanatical digital store. These games aren’t just indie games you’ve never heard of, either. They’re major AAA titles. Of the list of discounted games, Capcom’s Resident Evil 2 certainly stands out.

Right now, you can get it on Fanatical for $30.77. That’s a pretty decent deal for one of the most popular survival-horror games to come out in the past couple of years. If you’re not familiar with the Resident Evil franchise, it has been so fundamental for horror video games. Many games would try to replicate its successful recipe, including Silent Hill and The Evil Within.

This latest installment is perhaps one of the best games in the series. It’s a remake of the original Resident Evil 2 that debuted back in 1998. In this version, you’ll get to experience the story from two different perspectives: Leon S. Kennedy and Claire Redfield. The zombie apocalypse is in full effect, and it’s up to your quick decision-making to escape the city before it’s overrun with zombies.

Both characters agree to meet at the Raccoon City police station. Of course, it’s filled with zombies. That’s not all, either. There’s a huge boss-like character known as Mr. X. You can’t harm him in the slightest. Instead, you’ll have to retrace your steps and find a safe hiding place until he disappears into the darkness. Even more frightening is Mr. X can come out at any point. It certainly builds suspense and keeps you on the edge of your seat throughout this game’s full run-time.

Another great choice from Capcom when designing this game was the two different character paths. Claire and Leon both have to get through the police station, but they must make different decisions and take different paths. This design gives Resident Evil 2 (2019) great re-playability.

Finally, taking down zombies in this game isn’t a walk in the park. There will be times when you unload a full clip of ammo only to have a zombie continue walking forward. At times, it can be frustrating. You’re forced to conserve ammo for difficult parts in the game. Still, getting past complex sections leaves a ton of satisfaction. The difficult design is somewhat addicting, in fact.

For just $30.77, Resident Evil 2 on PC is a pretty great deal. You’ll never feel the same about waves of zombies again.
